"Picture and sound are superb. Software two thumbs down."4.0 starson by davetbeblade01
Pros: Great for load and dark locations., I took the camcorder to a New York City club, and put it to a rigorous test of thunderous bass and super hi frequency. The camcorder sounded fantastic with no distortion. The video looked sharp, crisp and vivid.
Cons: Comes with three software discs. It's very difficult to work with. The software chooses what video to work with and regards to transferring image to computer it's just simply a nightmare. Can't transfer video to computer.
Summary: I would have given this camcorder a 4.5 but the software dose not put out what it's suppose to. Software is terrible. I'm unfortunately returning it.
